Summary

Summary

Most people see leadership as the act of leading someone else. Not Peter Urs Bender. For him, leadership begins with leading ourselves. It means finding out what will bring us fulfillment not in isolation from others but in collaboration with them. He shows that there are two kinds of leaders: leaders-from-without, who are driven by fear, pressures, and elements beyond their control; and leaders-from-within, who are moved by a desire to help, encourage, and realize shared visions.Bender, who through his seminars and previous publications has helped thousands become dynamic speakers, identifies the steps to personal and professional leadership from within. He includes lists of tips, fascinating stories from eminent religions, thought-provoking questions, and simple exercises to help you strengthen your leadership muscles.
